Jason began his service with the Department of Children Youth and Families in August of 2014. Working out of the Bellevue Office he began as a CFWS social worker. In 2016 he began supervising the CFWS unit as well as the FVS Program. In 2018 the FRS program was brought back to the Bellevue office, which he also supervised.
Prior to working for DCYF, Jason was employed by Hale Kipa, a non profit organization that serves youth and families in Hawaii. From 2002 - 2014 he worked as a counselor in a Crisis Shelter and concluded his time with the organization as a ILP case manager. Jason loved his time in Hawaii and was influenced by the closeness of family and community on the islands. He worked to develop that same kind of rapport with both the families he worked with and the workers he supervised.
